Schubert’s Winterreise is one of the most unique and fascinating song cycles written in the Romantic era. The poems Schubert set to music are masterpieces in themselves and any performance of the songs will highlight the importance of both music and word.

Award-winning and critically acclaimed English Baritone Alex Poulton will use the intimate setting of the Great Hall of St Nicholas Priory to tell the story of Schubert’s wanderer and his experience of the winter landscape of his feelings.

During the evening, we will introduce the audience to the Romantic period of musical and poetic creation, the conception of the poems, their language, expression and how Schubert’s musical setting enhances, adds and creates even more layers of meaning and emotion.

Award-winning and critically acclaimed English baritone and composer Alex Poulton has performed in recital in major festivals throughout Europe and in many of the worlds leading concert venues from ‘The Wigmore Hall’, ‘The London Palladium’ to ‘The De Doelen’, Rotterdam. Alex studied under Julian Pike and performed in masterclasses in Germany under the legendary Dietrich Fischer Dieskau. His core repertoire includes all three of Schubert’s song cycles.  He also sings art song for BBC television and has appeared on ITV, working in collaboration with Keith Cheetham, Robin Bowman and veteran Radio 3 broadcaster Piers Burton-Page.  At The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Alex won the Reginald Vincent Lieder Prize and was awarded a scholarship from the Joseph Weingarten Memorial Trust, to study Opera at the Franz Liszt Academy, Budapest and lieder at the Weimar, Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt.
